Market Overview:

A linear regulator is a sort of power management IC used in many different electrical devices that can produce a constant voltage from an input voltage. LDO regulators, also known as low-dropout regulators, are a form of linear voltage regulator that can work with very small potential differences between the input and output. In electronic equipment, a linear regulator generates the required voltage primarily using energy from the battery. From the input voltage, a linear regulator can provide a lower stable voltage. The market for linear regulator power management ICs is expanding as consumers' demand for battery-powered gadgets such as smartphones, tablets, wearable technology, digital cameras, navigation systems, and others rises.

Depending on the application, the automobile sector is likely to have a much larger share.

One of the biggest markets for PMICs with linear regulators is the automotive industry. The expansion of the market is anticipated to be fueled by the expansion of the automotive sector. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, new automobile registrations worldwide hit 66.2 million units in 2022 as sales increased in the year's final quarter. As technology advancements in accident prevention and autonomous driving continue, safety criteria in the car industry have increased recently. Accordingly, the sophistication of the sensors and cameras used in ADAS is rising, calling for power supply ICs that can deliver higher currents in more compact packages. For instance, Automotive-grade LDO regulator ICs from the new BUxxJA3DG-C series were released by ROHM Semiconductor in October 2022. The gadgets are made for automobile applications, such as the more potent and compact ADAS sensors. Power management ICs must have extremely low noise characteristics because noise imposed on the power supply to advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and video sensing systems might impact the sensing performance in the automotive industry. A new LDO regulator with ultra-low noise, high power supply ripple rejection (PSRR), and a soft-start capability, ideal for usage in automotive applications, was thus introduced by Nisshinbo Micro Devices Inc. in January 2022. The NR1640 series is appropriate for use in Lidar, sensing cameras, and driver monitoring systems, among other ADAS-related vehicle sensors.

Due to the shrinking device size and the need for steady power output in consumer electronics, the demand for linear regulator PMICs has increased.

Some of the key elements anticipated to significantly influence the use of Linear Regulator Power Management IC throughout the forecast period include the growing functionality of consumer electronics goods and the rising acceptance of smart devices and smart wearables. The need for Linear Regulator Power Management ICs is being fueled by the increasing usage of techniques including reducing device size and stabilizing power line output. For instance, Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation introduced the "TCR5RG series" of 45 LDO regulators in March 2021. These LDO regulators are all included in a slim, small WCSP4F box. The new LDO regulators' industry-leading high ripple rejection ratio improves power stabilization on DC power lines for portable electronics. For power line applications in cameras and small devices like smartphones and wearables that require high-density mounting, the new LDO regulators are appropriate. Additionally, due to the growing prevalence of smart homes, it is anticipated that sales of smart appliances would increase over the projection period and see considerable applications. A new range of low drop-out (LDO) voltage regulators was added to Diodes Incorporated's line of power management products in April 2022. Applications for the DIODES AP7387 components include smoke detectors, power tools, cordless vacuum cleaners, and several other home appliances.

Key developments

  • February 2022: The S-19255 Series of automotive LDO linear regulators has been introduced by ABLIC Inc. The new S-19255 Series is available in the HSNT-4(1010)B (1.01.0x t0.41mm) container, the industry's smallest package, which contributes to better ease of design and the ability to handle smaller camera modules. Another distinguishing feature of the new S-19255 Series is its high PSRR (Power Supply Rejection Ratio).
  • December 2020: Ricoh Electronic Devices Co., Ltd. in Japan has introduced the R1526 300mA voltage regulator, which operates at up to 42V input voltage. The regulator has major benefits such as a wide input voltage range, fast transient response, and excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise immunity for usage in applications with demanding noise requirements such as consumer, industrial, and automotive applications.

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to have the fastest rate of growth.

Asia-Pacific has had impressive growth in several industries, including consumer electronics and automobiles. The demand for linear regulator power management ICs has been rising in the area since they are the main end-user industries for them. The market is anticipated to expand as the various regional governments of the Asia Pacific region increase their investments in these areas. Due to India's continual rise in disposable income and technological advancement, there is an increasing need for a wide variety of consumer durable goods. As a result, there is severe competition among the many consumer durable brands that are sold throughout the nation. Multinational corporations see India as one of the key markets where future expansion is expected to start. The Indian consumer electronics and appliances market was worth $9.84 billion in 2021, and IBEF projects that it will more than double to US$21.18 billion by 2025.

China's semiconductor industry has risen in the last few years to rival the region's status as the largest chip consumer and rank among the largest in the world. According to the Chinese Semiconductor Business Association, China's integrated circuit (IC) industry, which includes IC design, IC production, and IC packaging and testing, has generated $128 billion in sales from 2015 to 2020 alone (CSIA). Hence, demand for liner regulator power management ICs is rising as a result of China's government placing more attention on the semiconductor sector.
